Our blog

Our blog has a global focus on the challenges, opportunities, and experiences defining and shaping business education. As such, we welcome your comments, feedback, and posts from across the higher education sector. 

Below are current issues that inform discourse and debate in business education and the student experience:

1.      Co-design of innovative pedagogical practices in business education and student experience 

Evaluating activities, technologies, and practices that challenge dominant business teaching and learning. Areas of interest include gamification, student-design and co-production, and the use of AI in Higher Education. 

2.      Evaluation of pedagogical innovation for large group teaching in business education 

Researching and understanding the impacts of pedagogical interventions specifically focussed on large group teaching and developments. 

3.      Engaging in strategic pedagogical and student experience change in business education

Interrogating approaches to enabling and delivering strategic pedagogical change in business education. Topics for investigation include online exams and new learning and teaching spaces.

4.      Participatory learning, student experience and students as partners in business education 

Identifying, interpreting, and enabling student voice in business education. We have a strong foundation in projects such as Work. Live. Play. Learn, where we work with students to understand their critical global, local, and personal challenges. We also investigate social isolation and connection for students studying at scale.

We welcome blog posts on these research areas, emerging investigations, or opinion pieces on critical issues relating to business education. Examples or case studies of practice are welcome too.

We look forward to sharing research and practice from colleagues near and far and invite you to connect with us here, on Twitter @CDRG_USYD or by email: business.cdrg@sydney.edu.au
